Recruiting - Martin Frierson

Georgia Tech has officially benefitted from the Notre Dame situation, as ND commit and Wide Receiver prospect Martin Frierson has changed his mind and decided to join the Jackets.

Martin Frierson, 6'2", 180lb, 4.47-40, 2-star Rivals
Frierson is a talented WR out of South Carolina (top 25 in the state). His high school team did not throw the ball a lot, but he caught passes for about 600 yards as a junior. In addition, he is a talented track athlete, running hurdles, long jump and triple jumps. He is a good student, with a GPA over 3.4 and SAT over 1000. Evidently he was wooed by Ty Willingham and once he was fired, the bloom was off the rose. Here's an article on the switch.......

Interesting recruiting tactic:

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Frierson visited Georgia Tech last weekend. Hanna said Frierson was told by a member of the Georgia Tech staff on Monday that they would offer him a scholarship if he agreed to accept, and if he agreed not to visit any other schools. Maryland had also expressed interest in Frierson.
